Oz Spammer Made To Pay

J & L Mainwaring Pty Limited, which used the Internet domain Oneofthebest.com, has paid a $21,600 infringement notice for breaches of the Spam Act, the Australian Communications and Media Authority has reported.

This follows an ACMA investigation which found that Mainwaring had sent marketing e-mails on behalf of other businesses, but was unable to show that the recipients consented to receive the messages. It also failed to include the name and contact details of the business that authorised sending of the message.

ACMA points out that the Spam Act provides that commercial electronic messages must not be sent without the recipient’s consent; a clear ID of the sender; and an “unsubscribe” facility.

Repeat corporate offenders can be hit with penalties of up to $1.7 million a day.
